    Campsite Laurel Creek 476.2

    June 7, 2017 in the United States

    Today we made it to Damascus and the first thing we did is to figure out where to get pancakes because Julia didn't talk about anything else since yesterday :) She even taught me some Spanish breakfast vocabulary ("Quiero un hot cake con miel de maple")
    After we got those pancakes we went for a resupply at Dollar General and used the free WiFi access. We got an almost full can of gas from Rocket and Rockette because they've sent their stove home and asked us if we needed it. Until now, we've only bought one can, the others were found in hiker boxes or just randomly like now.
    We've met those two about a week ago at the trail angel Brother Tom and we kept on seeing each other along the trail. They are a lovely retired couple who are thru hiking the AT by flip flopping. We hope to see them again soon, they're usually faster than us :D
    In the afternoon we visited an outfitter to check on a new pair of shoes for Julia because the ones she's currently using are starting to fall apart. And we were actually successful in finding one that fit her and were at a reasonable price! So now she'll carry them until the others break completely.
    After an enormous meal at the gas station with free soda (apparently we look like we're in need ;)) we finally went back on the trail. It was quite an easy and flat hike along the Laurel Creek to a Campsite directly at the river. Eventually we made a small detour, but luckily some trail runners managed to get us back to our beloved white blazes!!

    Somewhere before Unnamed Gap 460.2

    June 6, 2017 in the United States

    With a nice decent instant coffee we started into a new day. The part of the trail where we are currently on is named "Tennessee Turnpike" because the terrain allows to make more miles than usually.
    In parts we could use this to our advantage :) In the afternoon we saw a rattle snake directly next to the trail. It was enjoying the sun there and seemed to be sleeping. It didn't care about us making noises.
    Tennessee is named "The Volunteer State" - like New York "Empire State" or Florida "Sunshine State" - and now we know why. First Bob Peoples with his projects like the Hardcore Volunteers. And today we met Greg who worked the whole day to clear a part of the trail from weeds. It's amazing to see how much time and money they spend and you can really see that the trail is in a perfect condition here.

    The tent is still wet from the rain last night so we hope to have a dry night so it can dry...

    Abingdon, VA

    March 11, 2016 in the United States

    This is the site of Heartwood, a center for Virginia's Crooked Road Trail. In addition to the collctions and presentations by regional artisans they feature music every Thursday night. Last night the young folks had their spotlight. The 11 to 15-year olds in the group Shadow Grass blew everyone away with their talent and stage presence. Sensational!
    Beautiful countryside sites on a warm spring day and a stop for an iced coffee at Zazzyz made this last day in Virginia a perfect 10.Read more
